The Ashesi D:Lab, Blockchain Society Ghana, Kumasi Hive and Devless are organizing the first Blockchain Hackathon in Ghana in partnership with the Ministry of Trade and the Association of Ghana Industries.
For this challenge, teams from all over Ghana are being invited to design and pitch a blockchain-inspired solution for a supply chain platform for the Ministry of Trade.
